From the Paper:

"Introduction Prenatal screening is not routinely offered at health care facilities, nor is information provided to patients with regard to prenatal screening. Most women that deliver babies today that have genetic defects were never offered the opportunity for prenatal screening during their pregnancies. Studies have indicated that as women age they have a greater risk of fertility problems, and that by age 25 women run a 1 in 250 chance of having a child with Down's Syndrome. The American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, therefore, recommends that all women over the age of 30 be offered prenatal testing to determine if there is a genetic disorder in the unborn child."
